As others have mentioned the menu isn't as substantial as some of the other restraunt's around the pink elephant. However the food is really tasty and inexpensive. We had a creamy chicken curry and kebab with the chicken on both being of good quality. Would recommend.

Went based on trip advisor recommendations, the service was very slow - took 15 mins to be given a menu. The menu, when arrived is pretty basic - no starters or desserts. But, when the food arrived it was really tasty - so would probably return to this place.

limited menu, the serving sized were extremely small, after complaining they gave me a free shot - we still walked out hungry looking for roti to finish the night

We stayed for 3 nights, nice rooms on top with the view. Good AC and fan. Restaurant is good, Chaminda can make you whatever you would like, even what's not a menu. Just ask for it. We have good lobster and crabs.

This was the astonishing words I heard one Saturday night I kid you not, I'll get to that one later. As we were staying in Unawatuna for 10 nights we often found ourselves eating here due to the rave reviews on T/A, and to be honest our first visit was really good and with a half decent menu and even...

The place is a nice pub, a lot of foreigners go there. The waiters and bar tenders always know where is the next party going to take place in town. A good place to start your night with some drinks.

The environment is top-notch, giving a great atmosphere and is only matched by the genuine friendliness and generosity of the staff. Authentic, warm and lively; the pink elephant is the perfect place if you want an amazing chicken kebab or a killer breakfast, or even fancy starting the night with a great selection of affordable cocktails that will make you...
